For more than 90 years now, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has been committed to advancing academic relations between Germany and other countries as well as, more generally, to promoting the fields of education, science, culture and research. The 200 and more programmes of the DAAD pursues range from short-term exchanges for research or teaching purposes through to doctoral scholarships lasting several years for graduates from developing countries, from information visits by delegations of foreign university vice chancellors through to the long-term regional programmes conceived to establish efficient higher education systems in the Third World.
Development-Related Postgraduate Courses (EPOS)
With its development-oriented postgraduate study programs, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) promotes the training of specialists from development and newly industrialized countries. The scholarships offer foreign graduates from all disciplines and with at least two years' professional experience the chance to take a postgraduate or Master's degree at a state or state-recognized German university, and in exceptional cases to take a doctoral degree, and to obtain a university qualification (Master's/PhD) in Germany.
Please note that applications have to be sent to the respective course directly and refer to their websites for the application procedure (usually online application), deadlines and documents to be submitted. Applications are not routed through the DAAD or the German Embassy.
